However Qumran is a lot more than that, the site is an extensive archaeological site. The Visitors Center of the Qumran archaeological site has been made to look like ancient Qumran buildings. Inside you can see an informative film which will tell you a little about the site’s history. At the site you can see an ancient potter’s workshop, ritual baths, homes and the place where dates were crushed to make honey.
